  2. Los Angeles Times finally "reports" on the Stop Scientology Disconnection billboard story.

    The Los Angeles Times finally "reports" on the Stop Scientology Disconnection billboard story, albeit pathetically and only because of the breaking story about Ron Miscavige's book.

    The Los Angeles Times "story" is:

    Parents Use Billboard in Echo Park in Attempt to Reach Out to Children in Scientology.

    The "story" consists of a now old KTLA 5 video about the billboard, simply captioned "Phil and Willie Jones banded together with other families to launch a very public and visible appeal to their children using a billboard in Echo Park that simply states, 'to my loved one in Scientology ... call me.' Chris Wolfe reports from Echo Park for the KTLA 5 News at 6 on Wednesday, April 6, 2016."

    This story also has the tag: "This video is featured in these articles: JACKET COPY Father's memoir spurs Scientology leader David Miscavige to threaten lawsuit."

    The linked story --

    JACKET COPY Father's memoir spurs Scientology leader David Miscavige to threaten lawsuit

    -- simply includes the video and caption. It does NO original reporting.

  4. Stop Scientology Disconnection Billboard Project Update No. 11.

    * * * * * BEGIN QUOTATION * * * * *


    Billboard Update:

    Okay, we've got the next block of time secured and paid for. There was a bit of a scheduling thing but we've resolved it and are moving ahead.

    The billboard was previously paid up through to the end of May. This was done some weeks ago.

    Since then we were working on the fundraising to get the billboard secured up through the end of August but didn't quite make our goal. So, as it stands at this point we'll have a gap from the end of May through to July 18th, after which time we get our spot back. It's booked out to someone else during that gap (no, not Scientology).

    As of today we've got the Echo Park billboard space secured from July 18th, through August 28th. I will keep it up as long as we have funds and the billboard space is available.

    Phil and Willie’s excellent adventure: Taking on Scientology’s ‘disconnection’ policy in L.A.

    By Tony Ortega, The Underground Bunker, May 10, 2016


    Phil and Willie Jones won’t rest. Despite the success of their Echo Park billboard that got a ton of media attention, the Las Vegas couple was back in Los Angeles yesterday with another mission to raise awareness about Scientology’s toxic policy of ‘disconnection.’ When Phil told us what they had planned, we asked him to send us a report about their latest adventure. Here’s what he sent us.

    Willie Jones • 3 hours ago

    Yesterday when we we did the slow drive to promote reconnection of families, some of the staff seemed genuinely interested in what our message was. I feel for them because I am pretty certain they will be grilled about what they saw and how they feel about it. If there is any waivering, I am sure they will end up in ethics to be handled to the unth degree until they come to the conclusion "per policy", that we are evil SPs, to give up their own crimes and not to look anymore! Having a disagreement, even a slight one, is a huge no no! So sad.

    I am still holding out for a happy ending for all! To those still in who cannot communicate to family and friends, there are arms wide open just waiting to shower you with love, caring and understanding. Soon....

    I don't speak for WWP, but I'm sure I'm far from the only one here that doesn't like OSA conducting PR ops here against Co$ members who were manipulated and coerced into disconnecting from their families. The intention of all such PR ops, of course, is to kill sympathy for said members in hopes of stopping outside efforts to rescue them.

    The practice is both lame and extremely evil.

    I went to the and read all the disconnection stories. I agree with the posters above that Emily and Mike Jones are assholes and what they are doing is fucked up. They should be good kids and talk to Willie and Phil. Emily and Mike are brainwashed by the cult and Phil and Willie are awesome. I am glad they put up the billboard and the website it promotes as others can see how Mike, Emily and others are behaving like fucking animals.

    Maybe there are some other ways to spread COS's disconnection?
    Wouldn't it be cool if there was a symbol created specifically for disconnection?
    It can be made into jewelry and even put on t-shirts ect...

    I think I remember from one of Leah Remini's show that she knew someone who made jewelry?
    They can make charms, pendants, necklaces, bracelets, earrings.
    They can be made available on Amazon or wherever to purchase?
    I really like this idea. Can someone tweet Leah or just put out the word for anyone who would want to create a disconnection symbol and get some jewelry made?

    This idea is a little ambitious, but would also be really neat ...
    I thought it would be cool if some victims can create a painting or other art piece and have an art show to showcase all the art work. It can be a world wide collaboration? People can sign and send in their pieces?
    Maybe someone can collect all the pieces and then rent out a space to show them? And even auction them off to collect funds for more billboards or other projects?
    Kind of a neat idea.

    Run local radio adds or TV local access channels can have guests speak, or people can submit videos . Maybe sone funds can be used for a TV commercial to run?

    Since this thread has turned into a thread about the Disconnection billboard and its creation and news
    Can we ask the OP if a title change should be in order?
    The title may be a little confusing for people who come here?
    Or maybe start a separate thread? It should be Disconnection "For My Loved One in Scientology Call Me"? Or something on that order?

    I came up with a symbol for jewelry!
    It can be half a heart (left side of a heart) with an anchor dangling from the top within the heart.
    I thought half a heart to symbolize a broken heart and the anchor because it is the symbol for hope.
    And since many who disconnected are in the Se Org, I thought the anchor is the perfect symbol.
    Thoughts? I am not an artist, but I think someone can come up with a simple rendition? I also do not post pics here.
    I am in hopes that someone can PLEASE tweet this idea and symbol to Leah Remini and the Jones's?

    I think the heart should be just be open instead of jagged so the anchor can dangle as s charm within the heart suspended from the top bottom curve of the heart. OR more within the heart

    Call Me" Protest—PAC Base—Los Angeles—June 8, 2016

    Fred Haseney

    Published on Jun 8, 2016

    This is Photojournalist Fred G. Haseney with his eye on scientology. For today’s video, I’m reporting from the Pacific Area Command Base (“PAC Base” or “Big Blue”), the so-called "church" of scientology’s West Coast headquarters, in Los Angeles.

    In April 2016, ex-scientologists Phil and Willie Jones posted a billboard on Glendale Blvd., in the Echo Park section of Los Angeles. That billboard is a message of love to their adult children still trapped in scientology: "to my loved one in scientology... call me."

    Later that month, smaller versions of the "call me" sign were created: one with a magnetic backing, easily affixed to the side of a car; the other with a corrugated backing, easily to carry while walking. Within a very short period of time, scientology called the police on me as I walked about PAC Base, peacefully protesting their toxic practice of "disconnection, as I carried the "call me" sign" Then scientology secretly followed me and even tried to make life unpleasant when they approached the manager of where I live in an attempt to get him to "handle" me. Soon, lies and rumors about me were circulated among PAC Security.

    Meanwhile, we continued protesting by foot and by car at various scientology events, including the 66th anniversary of dianetics as well as the Grand Opening of Scientology Media Productions.

    Today I walked up and down L. Ron Hubbard Way, carrying a "call me" sign. I didn't do anything but walk slowly and offer the sign to scientologists and Sea Org members alike to read. As soon as I turned the corner from Sunset onto LRH Way, two Sea Org members doubled back onto the street and notified security. Soon, three PAC Security Guards were circling me on bicycles; staff turned away when they saw the extracurricular activity; and PAC Security Guard Odo G. Huber arrived, silently, with Everio, a JVC Camcorder designed specifically to capture the moment.

    is the world watching this? Do they wonder what makes scientology collectively shake in its boots? One word: love.

I will happily go on it.” “Mercury poisoning by OT 8 Bruce Set.” “Theft, break-in in garage. Took everything valuable.” (Shades of what happened recently to an ex-scientologist, Joyce, who is also homeless).” “Phone tapping and more.”

    Billboard 2.0 — Phil and Willie Jones set their sights on Scientology’s mecca in Florida

    By Tony Ortega, The Underground Bunker, June 11, 2016


    Phil and Willie, who live in Las Vegas, chose Los Angeles for the “Call Me” billboard because that’s where their children work for the church. But now, they’ve decided to raise funds for a second billboard in Clearwater, Florida, another major center for Scientology with a large concentration of Sea Org workers.

    “Willie and I lived in Clearwater for about 26 years,” Phil tells us. “It’s considered the spiritual center for Scientology, and those who are going up the Scientology ‘Bridge’ will eventually go there. For a small town Scientology owns a larger percentage of property there than any other city or town in the world. Clearwater is where our daughter first joined the Sea Org.”

    Phil says he’s attempting to raise $5,400 at a donation page in order to make the Florida billboard a reality. In the meantime, he let us know that the Echo Park billboard in Los Angeles is currently down, but he says his goal is to get both billboards — in Los Angeles and Clearwater — up at the same time next month.

    The Los Angeles billboard, which had been up since April 4, came down about two weeks ago because of a small snafu in making a payment on time. But there are funds already in place to keep it going, so it will be going back up in July, Willie says.

    And he’s aiming to get the new billboard, in Clearwater, unveiled on the same day that the L.A. billboard reappears.

    Will be interesting to see what company will do it.
    Hope it happens
    Would sure like to know more about that house across from Big Blue with the sign in the fence.
    Has anyone asked the owners what's it all about?
    Sounds like the cult is fair gaming them and will probably do everything they can to get them out area. Their story needs to be told.

    The goal for now is to get enough to pay for the printing and the first month. Any additional money we get will go to additional months of keeping the billboard up.

  32. Stop Scientology Disconnection “Call Me” Protest—Hollywood.

    Jenny at LAX: “Call Me” Protest—Hollywood

    * * * * * BEGIN EXCERPT * * * * *

    This is Photojournalist Fred G. Haseney with his eye on scientology. Normally, I report from the Pacific Area Command Base (“PAC Base” or “Big Blue”), the so-called “church” of scientology’s West Coast headquarters, located on L. Ron Hubbard Way (“LRH Way”). Today, however, I’m reporting from scientology’s Information Center, located at 6724 Hollywood Blvd., in the heart of Hollywood.

    Phil and Willie Jones have made famous a message of love to their adult children still trapped in scientology: “to my loved one in scientology… call me.” Originally posted billboard-sized on Glendale Blvd., in the Echo Park section of Los Angeles, it now comes in various forms: the “call me” sign I carried has a corrugated back which is excellent for clipping a mini-camcorder.

    A “call me” protest is a peaceful demonstration against scientology’s toxic practice of “disconnection.” Disconnection, like shunning and excommunication, breaks up families, destroys friendships and can even get someone fired if they work for a scientologist. Phil and Willie used to be scientologists, but are now speaking out against them. In doing so, their adult children, still trapped in scientology, have been forced to cut all ties with their mom and dad.

    Photo Caption: In this composite of four different photos, you may get an idea as to the extent which scientology will go in order to document the actions of a peaceful protester. In the first picture, the SG captures a photo (or video) of me as I stand in front of the IC; in the fourth picture, he takes another picture of me, but this time, I’m across the street. In the second photo, he’s moved a few feet west of the IC’s front doors. For the third picture, he crossed the street and is standing on the north side of Hollywood Blvd. In fact, as I prepared to leave for the day and waited for transportation at Hollywood and Highland (which is a block away from the IC), I just happened to look in the IC’s direction and actually caught the Sea Org Security Guard about 60 feet away from me. He even tried to duck out of sight.

    BILLBOARD 2.0 — Phil and Willie Jones near their goal for Clearwater

    By Tony Ortega, The Underground Bunker, June 14, 2016

    After just two days of fundraising, Phil and Willie Jones are nearing the halfway point at the GoFundMe page they set up to raise money for a billboard in Clearwater, Florida, like the one that was so successful in Los Angeles.

    Phil tells us he’s optimistic that enough money will come in that they’ll get the billboard up near Scientology’s “spiritual mecca” in the Florida gulf town. In April, they posted their “Call Me” sign in Echo Park, Los Angeles, and it produced an avalanche of press.

    They’re hoping for a similar result in Florida.

    Meanwhile, today in Los Angeles, the daughter they are cut off from, Emily, will probably be involved in Scientology’s celebration of the re-release of L. Ron Hubbard’s 1982 novel, Battlefield Earth.

    We hear there’s going to be crashed space saucer involved, perhaps on Hollywood Boulevard or elsewhere near the Author Services Inc. building, which is Hubbard’s literary agency, and where Emily works. If you’re in the area, let us know if you spot the saucer or Emily.

    Phil and Willie are so close!

    By Tony Ortega, The Underground Bunker, June 19, 2016

    Phil and Willie Jones are so close to raising the money for a Clearwater “Call Me” billboard, they tell us they’re going to go ahead and make the billboard happen, even if it means using their own money to reach their goal.

    Here’s your chance to help them get over the finish line so the Clearwater area can get a taste of the media frenzy that happened when they revealed their billboard in Los Angeles in April.
  35. The Wrong Guy Member

    Earlier today Phil Jones posted this update. Quote:

    We did it!

    Thanks to all who donated for the Clearwater billboard. The goal has been reached to cover the printing and first month for the Clearwater billboard.

    Any additional funds donated will go towards future months of keeping the billboard up. Willie and I are going to try to be there for the unveiling. I hope some of you will show up. I will announce the location and time once we get a bit closer.

    This gives hope and I believe this puts us closer to being reunited with our kids, and helping others to reconnect with their loved ones. I love you all and so appreciate all your support on this. This billboard is for all those who are suffering from Scientology's disconnection abuse. Together we will work to end this practice.
